Aurora Borealis embers Strive To Promote Interest in Athletics To provide an organization for the girls of Creston who are interested in athletics is the aim of the Aurora Borealis Club, directed by Miss Margaret Harmon. Under the able leadership of President Frieda Waldmiller and VicefPresident Marion Chown, the A.B. Club has assumed many duties of the entire gymnastic department and helped very much in the production of the annual Girls' Meet. To become a member of girls must have earned their either their letter or all-city Financially speaking, this paying for their Saga pictures, they pay for all the honors bestowed on worthy girls in the honor assembly. In past years they have also purchased the extra equipf ment not furnished by the Board of Education, namely Y pingfpong set, badminton set, shuffle board, and extra balls. This year the A.B. Club is buying a loud speaker which will be permanently installed in the gym and available for all activities such as dancing, basketball games, and girls' meets. Because Miss Harmon is chairman of the P.T.A. health committee, the A.B. Club financed the distribution of the health bulletins that were sent home with the report cards in the early part of the year. The girls of the A.B. Club are not interested only in athletics and business ventures, but also in the social affairs and good times. During the football season, the girls had a chop suey party at Miss Harmon's house before the CatholicfCreston game. Afterwards they went together to the game. One of the many hot dog sales at school was sponsored by the A.B. Club under the chairmanship of Jane Zimmer' man. Twenty of Creston's girls had a swimming class at the Y.W.C.A. regularly each week. During Christmas vacation an icefskating party was held to keep sport acnvides in progress while club members had much spare time. "Credit is due to Frieda Wald' miller for the success of the anf nual Girls' Meet," stated Miss Harmon. Frieda was general manager of the affair which was presented April 25 by the girls of Creston to demonstrate t h c i r athletic prowess to their parents and friends. Dancing, games, skills and stunts were featured. this athletic organization the numerals and be working for honor. club is outstanding.

Club assumed the greater share of the responsibility for the management of the Girls' Gym Nite. ln conjunction with this, the A.B. Club held afterfschool games each Monday night. Furthering athletic activities and abilities is the purpose of the A.B. Club's afterfschool games.

" " Club Boys Care for Crowds, Enlist Student Support, Aid Nine Who are those boys who take care of the crowd at the sport games? Who are those people who enlist the support of the student body? Who are those broadfshouldered lads who sell cards to raise funds for the baseball team? The answers to all of these questions are the same rm the HC" Club, which was formed on a permanent basis this year with Erwin Silverman being elected presidentg john McGee, vicefpresident, and Milton Sorenson, treasf urer. Mr. Henry Schrump, coach of the basketball and baseball teams, Mr. lvlartin Van Wingen, coach of the football and track squads, and Mr. jay J. Rens, faculty manager of athletics, have taken over the advising of the club. Newly organized this year was the "C" Club, whose membership is limited to boys who have earned their letter in a major sport. Post-d in the large picture, standing in the fourth row, left to right, are: Maurice Nies, Ralph Phillips, Don Mol, Martin Grinwis, Leonard Van't Hof, Ray Raven, Harold Ochampaugrh, Robert Shuker, Howard Reed. In the third row are: Bernard Rosenberg, Jack Ortman, Don DeFouw, Robert VanderKlip, Robert Johnson, Dick Ross, Keith O'Connor, Gordon Milli-r, Don Perkins. The second row consists of Mr. Shrump lAdviserl, Harvey Scott. Selling booster cards was the most well known of the "C" Club's projects. When one of the "wearers of the 'C's' " approached the students and asked them for their aid in supporting the baseball team, they would explain how badly the baseball nine needed uniforms and equip' ment. Most of the winners of a major "C" know the diffif culties and hardships encountered for the team and were convincing in the roles of salesmen. The plea, "Will you buy a booster card and support the baseball team" seldom ended in a refusal, with the student usually glad to help the athletic association along. A familiar sight at the football and basketball games were the large "C" sweaters as the club members kept the crowds away from the football gridiron and the first and third base lines on the baseball field. Seated on bleachers before the 'ipep" assembly audience last fall preceding football games, the players, most of whom are now "C" Club members, stood up and asked for a large attendance at the game. Though they did not make any speech records in diction, their appeals for cooperaf tion of the student body and school spirit often struck home to their listening audience and was partly responsible for the good turnfouts that were made at the grid classics. Although the club was not organized until the second semester, 40 major letter winners applied for membership. Of these boys, Zi played on the football squad, 9 com' peted in basketball, 9 were members of the track team, and 9 had positions on the baseball nine. The HC" Club's contribution to the Crestonite was a movie reviewing the football season of 1937 and a profit of approximately 38.00 was made. The pictures which adorn the walls near the boys' gym were put up by the athletic def partment. However, in the last few years the photographs have not been kept up to date. Conf sequently, the "C" Club has voted to buy frames and will continue this work. The purpose of this organizaf tion is to promote an athletic spirit among the athletes, stu' dents, and faculty members as well as to encourage the fellows in their work. An alumni club composed of athletes of former seasons was inaugurated recently. At their invitation the iiC" Club attend' ed a picnic at Townsend Park on June 4. All senior members were guests at a banquet. This event concluded the UC" Club's activif ties for the year.

All 'Round Club Moiy-Makers Sale of Delicacies During Year Include "Dogs," Caramel Apples: Nickel Dances Held in Gym Teasing, tantalizing aromas of sizzling hotfdogs floated through the air one afternoon. No, it isn't a picnic, but just the All 'Round Club with one of their many money' making ideas. Another project was the selling of carmeled apples. These delicacies proved most successful and prontable as was shown by the students' response. An entertaining means of raising money was pursued by the club. During the year several nickelfdances were held in the girls' gym. The highlight of their pecuniary activities was climaxed by the dance held in the girls' gym at the Crestonite. Dano' ing to the strains of records from popular orchestras was sought by students and visitors. However, these girls aren't just moneyfmaking conf scious. Many "getftogethers" and active times were held by this group under the leadership of Miss Margaret Appelt. Their social activities were in harmony with the club's name. One of the highlights of their program was the annual getfacquainted tea for mothers and Miss Edith Johnson who retired at the end of the first semester. One cold wintry night the girls and their guests braved old man weather and had a sleigh ride. Looking for treasures proved both fascinating and interesting on their treasure hunt. This group attended two movies at the Roxy Theater as guests of the Boys' Science Club. At several of their meetings the principles of parliaf mentary law were discussed. With the arrival of warm weather, the club went on a hike to John Ball Park. The All 'Round Club membership of 12 is limited by invitation. Mildred Klepser is the president while Frances Breshnahan fills the oflice of vicefpresident. Betty Morse was chosen secretary of the group and Janice Wood as manager of finances is the treasurer. Dorothy Hoxie as program chairman is responsible for the social activities. As all the members are graduating this June, plans are being made for an Alumni Club. Miss Margaret Appelt, club adviser, gave several dis' cussions on the correct way to conduct business meetings whereby the club added education as one of its many activities. The hike to John Ball Park was a gay funffest for the All 'Round girls and their chaperons who were Miss Mar' garet Appelt, Miss Ella von Sprecken, Mr. Robert Teele, Mr. Roy D. Perce, and Mr, and Mrs. Harold Carlyon. The club hiked to John Ball Park, and had refreshments of hot dogs, pickles, coffee, and cake, after which they played ball and even the chaperons joined in. Then paying the poor, lonely animals a visit the club packed up its lunch baskets and returned home a l'automobile. Earlier in the year, Miss Cleo Wood, English teacher, gave a talk on her trip to Europe with Miss Lois Conrad. She vividly described the historic foreign places which she had visited.
